Spicy Sausage Pasta

This is a super quick and easy weeknight dinner!!!  So good!


1 TBSP Olive Oil
1 lb Smoked Sausage (I used Butterball Polka Kielbasa Turkey Sausage)
1 1/2 cups diced onions
2 cloves of garlic
2 cups low sodium chicken broth
1 10oz can of mild rotel or if you don't want it spicy 1 can of diced tomatoes and a 1/2 small can of diced green chilis
1/2 cup heavy cream
8 oz penne pasta uncooked
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 cup Monterey Jack Cheese, shredded
1/3 cup thinly sliced scallions

Add olive oil to an oven safe skillet over medium high heat.  Brown sausage and onions until lightly browned.  Add garlic and cook till fragrant.  Add broth, tomatoes, cream, pasta, salt and pepper and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to medium low and cook until pasta is tender, about 15 minutes.  Remove from heat and stir in 1/2 cup of cheese.  Top with remaining cheese and scallions and then broil in oven till cheese is melted and spotty brown.
